Classes reopening in August!

 

All classes are open to everybody, including new beginners. We will structure new beginners courses in the autumn, in the meantime, just turn up!

 

Following feedback from all of you we understand that some of you are not comfertable with the idea of resuming indoor classes (and some of our regular venues will not open till the autumn) so we are starting with a slimmed down timetable.

 

We will open more classes in September.

New beginners (and intermediate) courses in September!

 

From the beginning of September, we plan to open more classes and adapt our timetable to reflect demand. We will open as a trial a 6.00PM Monday evening Qigong class which will provide a non mat-based class for people who prefer to not lie on the floor. Our Yoga and Tai Chi students will attend anyway, but new beginners of all abilities will find this class provides a fantastic, easy to follow exercise that is so good for you, you won’t believe it!

 

Because of the need to maintain social distancing in our classes we plan to often teach everybody the same exercises or forms in a group.

This is a great opportunity for new beginners to learn and experienced students and instructors to review and improve. There will be an element of flexibility to the classes, if for instance no beginners attend a ‘first section’ class we will teach a general class, experienced students may also practise away from the main group if space permits.

 

New beginners learning Tai Chi can join a ‘second section’ or third section’ class, it is of course recommended that you join a first section class as well (or learn at home from our free videos).

 

There is no need to book, however we would prefer new (and returning) students to start on the dates indicated below and use our online video resources to reinforce the lessons.

 

As everyone is aware, advice concerning social distancing can change at the drop of a hat, meaning classes may change month on month. We do plan to open more classes in October, but we will have to adapt and amend our timetable to reflect demand. Good job we teach people to be patient, innit!

Teaching you safely and responsibly 

 

We want you to enjoy our classes however we will follow strict guidelines to keep you all safe. 

 

We will ask you to use different doors to enter and exit all classes. We must ask that you do not congregate anywhere near the doors, either when you are waiting to go in or exiting after the class (Some people won’t remember or notice, so please notice for them and remind them to shift!) 

 

The room will be kept ventilated with a door open at either end. Don’t walk in through the out door! (a little joke for the Prince fans) 

Face masks will not be mandatory however you are welcome to wear one yourself. The teacher will be wearing a face mask while registering everyone but take it off to teach the class. 

 

We will have a non contact infra red thermometer which we may zap you with to take your temperature, a big box of gloves, masks and hand gel which you are welcome to help yourselves to. 

Mats will not be provided, you will need to bring one for a Yoga class. 

 

Everyone will stay a minimum of 2 meters away from each other, regardless of what Boris says. 

 

I would prefer you to pay by bank transfer before you come but I really don’t mind taking cash or dealing with tickets, I’ll be gelling up all the time anyway. We are looking into contactless payment but nowhere we teach has Wi-Fi to authorise the payments, so we will continue to look into it! 

 

Class numbers will not be restricted, judging by your feedback only about half of you are ready to return. I’ve asked for the bigger hall at the Priory and If it unexpectantly gets busy we have access to outside space, and I can send a small group into the car park or upstairs at St James Church if we need to. If we run into problems, I’ll change it. 

 

I will ask everyone to register and take your phone number when you enter the class so please come and see me when you arrive. 

 

Everything else will be taken care of by common sense and respect for each other. If you have any concerns or suggestions, you can let me know (and do let me know rather than grumble and say nothing!) and I’ll decide. Remember, I’m in charge. I think it’s for the best. ?
